Oak Park's other notable Dem, State Senate President Don Harmon, is also an at-large elector for Illinois in the Electoral College. Harmon joined the other electors from Illinois in a recent letter to Emily Murphy, the recalcitrant administrator of the federal General Services Administration, demanding that she recognize Joe Biden as the "apparent" winner of the presidential election. Such action would open the path to funding and permissions allowing a traditional presidential succession.

Maybe Don could send a letter to the "recalcitrant" speaker of the house Madigan to immediate resign his post as the leader of the democratic party here in Illinois!
